The Office of Admissions at Xaverian takes many factors into consideration when looking at prospective students. These include the TACHS exam, and our own online application, (complete with letters of recommendation, student's grades, as well as other components of the student’s life). The online application and letters of recommendation must be submitted no later than Wednesday, November 10, 2021.

Students who are seeking academic scholarship must sit for our scholarship exam. Please indicate your interest in sitting for this exam on our online application. Students who are seeking music scholarships must contact Mr. Joseph Loposky, Director of Music at Xaverian, at (718) 836-7100 x177 to schedule an audition. Students are welcome to apply for both academic and music scholarships, as well as financial aid.
